driver

An irate motorist is being hailed as a hero for hurling profanities at a police officer who approached his car with his gun drawn. The cop pulled the driver over for failure to use his turn signal.

The video showing a black man chewing out a Hispanic cop for drawing his service pistol has gone viral on social media.

"You pointed your gun at me. Do you feel empowered? You see what the f-ck going on on TV? A turn signal not made is a big enough of a crime for you to feel like you need to take out your service pistol, right? Right?" said the unidentified man.

"Good cops get f-cked-up raps because of people like you. You picked a dangerous f-cking job, and I respect that. But my G, drawing a f-cking gun? That's where I lose the respect," the man said.

Many social media users criticized the man for using profanity and belittling the cop while live-streaming the traffic stop. They say his actions will only make it harder on the next black driver who isn't live-streaming their traffic stops.

But others say the man is protesting a system of oppression and racism that is still prevalent in America.

    I saw this over the weekend. All I kept thinking was if this was not being recorded, bro man would be effed up by this cop. Damn devil!!!

  • You Could Never

    this is priceless. Im glad he aint get shot. but it needed to be done/said.

  • http://www.keenready.com KeenReady.COM ?

    So what if it was recorded...he could still be dead. Stop. It.

  • http://www.keenready.com KeenReady.COM ?

    Applaud him for stepping up but being alone will not help and get you killed. We need numbers...folks are too pussy to do anything.

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    dude went IN! folks quick to say they 'understand' that a cop may have felt threatened when he/she has killed an unarmed individual, so i'ma say i understand where this brother was coming from. he is SICKA DIS SHID!!! (glad he's okay though, lol)

  • You Could Never

    Cop dude just standing there. Looking all kinds of dumb

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    because he has no rebuttal. some may not agree with dude's 'delivery' but he is speaking straight truth to this cop!

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    and where did this outrageous traffic violation occur? Mayberry?! this cop needs to come work in the DMV 'cause he'd be guaranteed to make his quota - in one day! the way this traffic and the driving is set-up, it's rare when someone DOES use their indicator! FOH!

  • Bonsai

    Lol dude was like you got picked on in school and you ain't get no f*cking p*ssy... Lol... But on a serious note the brother had ever right to cuss out that cop.

  • Miss Lady

    Okay

  • Noirluv45

    "Many social media users criticized the man for using profanity and belittling the cop while live-streaming the traffic stop. They say his actions will only make it harder on the next black driver who isn’t live-streaming their traffic stops." Doesn't matter because the paid assassins are going to do what they want regardless of whether we cuss their asses out or have our hands raised.

  • Noirluv45

    I know that's right and it irritates the hell out of me when people don't use their indicator!

  • KLo

    Pig standing there look like a speechless BEACH

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    its.
    right.
    there.

    i be in my car HOT! 'bish i can't read your mind and i don't know where you live, so NO, i didn't know you were taking this next left!!!' https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/63d1da5f502ee5cb931b4b6cbd5b12f9625a58356abcab137e67cbcc496aa4b5.gif

  • Nophace

    forgot where I was. I found myself looking for the "Like" button! Hahahaha

  • Yardgirl

    What? The cop saw that he was being recorded.... nevermind....

  • Yardgirl

    Straight truths! When he said that his 3 kids could have lost their father, I got chills. Facts.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    I can't lie, I enjoyed this very much. VERY MUCH!!!! Thanks bruh!

  • LuLu

    I agree. What was to stop him from shooting him in the head once he got through/while cursing him out? Oh! Because he's on video? THAT didn't do anything for the men that were KILLED on video. He said on the recording that he has three little girls to get home to. Remember that, bruh! Take your ticket and keep pushing. Take it up in court. Bottom line, he has a gun and you don't!

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    LOL!!!

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    oh open post....

    Shug, anybody still in touch with OTB? i been thinking about her and the chirren all weekend https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/40856033303d04950fead1121c6be6c0bd1dd252110cb05af14c38f525dcbbac.gif with all this Irma coverage.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Aside from this video...do you ever get the impression some people can't wait to film things for social media? Asking for a friend?

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Tell your friend yes. LOL!

  • Just Passing Through

    I been thinking of her. Luvie. Fayla. God bless all the Florida Roses man.

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    This^^^^^^!

    all because of a turn signal and a potentially trigger happy cop. (but some don't get that he has every right to be outraged, smh)

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    OMG, you are right! I hope all is well with all of them.

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!
  • Sonny Johnson

    Depending on what state they were in and the the temperament of the officer The irate driver could have been arrested for disorderly conduct and believe even though it's recorded the police union would have bullshitted there way out of another potential situation

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!
  • Karen Brady

    Tell your friend I said YEP.

  • Sonny Johnson

    Oh yea, I mean it's fair to say we live in a society where narcissism and sensationalism is at an all time high.

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!
  • Karen Brady

    couple of things.. shyt can't get worse, it BEEN WORSE homie. My jaw dropped when he brought up pussy...teeeheeeeee heeee.. Glad this brother made it home alive and love that he mentioned his babies. PEACE.

  • Karen Brady

    I just said if I had just half a cent for every time someone didn't signal I'd be Oprah's next door neighbor neighbor honey.

  • Karen Brady

    me too!!!

  • Karen Brady

    right.. it's easier than changing stations dammit

  • Karen Brady

    so glad..

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    ROFL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you not lyin tho, LOL!

  • Karen Brady

    had one more thought...some might say he acted a fool much like Sandra Bland and you see where it got that poor woman. Just food for thought. He got the right cop in the right mood cuz this could have gone waaaay past left. :-(.

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    they can't signal because they're holding their phone (never mind that the law is 'hands free') https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5406a067d89d1924f4f9967857b7ca15a701e44524df7514659efb170810c224.gif

  • You Could Never

    Its always one in every discussion that sides with the police. He took a damn chance. We dont think he didnt know he could have been killed?
    Why do we think that he is UNaware? Why do we assume this? And last I checked a whole lot of movements started with the actions of ONE. However--he is actually not the first to go off on a cop either and film it.

  • shun king

    that behavior is what getting folks shot..you cant talk to cops like that yes you have rights but you can end up dead exercising your rights

  • shun king

    well if he died its would have been marches and t shirts that stands for something right?

  • shun king

    another thing that is a hispanic they hate blacks a lot more than whites but you always see blacks standing up for them things have gotten very strange

  • Liah

    Right!!!....People sure forget that!!...I didnt !

  • shun king

    most of these folks bucking on cops is to just record it

  • You Could Never

    but you can end up dead exercising your rights

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    41 is the number they give but Im sure its in the hundreds. Of people who died between '54-68 trying to "exercise their rights". So its not new. Im sure he knew the risk.

  • Liah

    I agree with him...The white folks cuse police out EVERY chance they get!...I agree with you Bro!...Express YOURSELF!!!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Hispanics is an ethnicity.

    There are black and white Hispanics.

  • SumthinSweeter

    THIS is what FB should be used for.

  • shun king

    you can pull straws all you want the truth still stands

  • Jamal Warner

    You know what he mean. A latin.

  • Liah

    Right!!!

  • T3

    I fkn hollered when he said that. THAT shit was funny. Risky for sure. But still funny.

  • Karen Brady

    EXACTLY AND THAT PISSES ME OFF BEYOND BELIEF.

  • You Could Never

    "These folks are apparently unaware of the nuances of Hispanic identity. The U.S. Census Bureau defines Hispanic/Latino as referring to “a person of Cuban, Mexican, Puerto Rican, South or Central American, or other Spanish culture or origin regardless of race.”

    They key words here are regardless of race. In fact, Hispanics can be white, black, Asian, or multiracial. That’s because the term “Hispanic,” like “Latino,” refers to an ethnicity, not a race. And a majority of Hispanics actually self-identify as white. According to the 2010 U.S. Census, 53 percent of Hispanics chose “white “ as their race, while 36 percent chose “some other race.”'

    What Is A “White Hispanic”?

    You know?! It's not that hard to use it either. SMH. Lazy!

  • shun king

    you mean when black folks wanted to drink out of white fountains and wanted whites to educate black kids

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I don't defend them but keep making your generalizations and stereotypes.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    The cop pulled a gun on him for not signaling a turn.

    What else do you think it would take the set off the cop?

  • Karen Brady

    teeeheeeeee heeeeeeee.. you see my azz still giggling but yes boo absolutely risky.

  • Breitbart_Savior

    Does Sandra Rose hate black men?

    The tone ... the word choice ... the structure of her write-ups about black men are always so dark and slanted. But when she rights about men like Trump there's always a ting of reverence.

    She's either a bitter woman, or just convoluted for the sake of clicks (which leads to the former point).

  • Breitbart_Savior

    ^^^^^

    That part.

  • You Could Never

    you mean when black folks wanted to drink out of white fountains and wanted whites to educate black kids

    ^^^^^^^^^^
    Or just wanted to vote (Rev George Lee) or just wanted to GO TO CHURCH (the girls who died at 16th Street Baptist). They are part of the 41.

    You keep on being cute though.

  • Noirluv45

    That's Black folks for ya. We are always parading for everyone else and it's rarely, if ever, reciprocated. I watch Roland Martin's New One Now and he has representative of the Latin community or Asian Indian community all the time, yet we know good and well they would not do the same. We are so all-damn inclusive!

  • MsPam

    This dude ain't no hero! Unless clowns are heroes now?!

  • Noirluv45

    Hey Shun, folks can also "yes sir/no sir" and do everything right and still get shot.

  • shun king

    you the one being cute that wanting what the white man got with out working for it turned to be alot more detrimental than helping and if you smart you should know that...the problem is you people killing each other not white killing blacks

  • SumthinSweeter

    Lol and Smh and it's a damn shame. I work with and moderately socialize with a lot of different races of people. So when I tell you the Arabic's, the Indians the Asians, the Africans, etc.... they stay and stick by each other. Family friend or stranger. They come over to America with the purpose to build and co-op. We as blacks don't think to realize why the Asians now have the hair and nail sector on lock.

  • Noirluv45

    Don't get me started with the phone. I swear, I get behind people driving 5 miles an hour, pass them up and they are texting or talking. Depending on the day, I want to pull over, open their car door, take their phone and shove it down their throat!

  • Noirluv45

    Me too!!!

  • shun king

    not as likely

  • You Could Never

    wanting what the white man got with out working for it

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    Last I checked we worked for gatdamn FREE for it for almost 250 years on this soil as SLAVES. How much more work do you suggest we put in?

    Aye. Fukk you yo.

  • shun king

    yall choose to do that work could have fought back...you guys love life more than freedom for your people

  • You Could Never

    ^^^^^^^^^^^
    And get hunted like an animal for running and to get beaten and your offspring and spouse sold? You sound extra damn stupid on today.

  • Noirluv45

    Yes, they sure do! Speaking of Asians and the Black hair care industry, there's a very popular documentary on that subject. The thing is the distributors have everyone on lock down. Even if a Black owner opens a store, who's going to distribute to them. They have it tied all the way up!

  • dontgetblocked

    DO NOT DO THIS! These cops will shoot you down and get off. Put your hands up and shut your mouth. Live to tell the story. Those bullets are real and it's not worth the risk.

  • Buttercup

    The cop knew he was wrong. He was "holding his vest" (but really covering his badge) the entire time. I applaud this brother for taking a stand, because we've seen how far civility has gotten us.

  • brownisback

    Did anyone else see what Demario Jackson said about the chick on Bachelor in Paradise when they asked why he didn't talk bad about her

    ''I wasn't just representing DeMario Jackson. I was representing African-American men'

  • kennedy220

    they have that hair sector on lock because they won't let us in..by making it hard for us to buy the hair so we can sell it..we can get the product anywhere..but you are right..i remember growing up working at my fathers business and his latino customers would put their pay checks together and buy a car...then they would come back and buy the next a car and the next...my dads customers were primarily anything but US

  • dontgetblocked

    I recently received a Census survey and read that. It seems like a way to stop minorities from becoming the majority. So now Mexicans are classified as white. Very confusing and deceptive but that's how the whites stay the majority or at least on paper.

  • Noirluv45

    Yes, as likely. In fact, one doesn't have to do anything to get shot (John Crawford III and Tamir Rice to name a few.)

  • Karen Brady

    wow. that's crazy. smh.

  • Noirluv45

    SMH. Thank you! How soon some of us forget. Philando Castile told the idiot cop he had a LEGAL firearm, and he got shot. Eric Garner was supposedly selling illegal cigarette, and the list goes on and on.

  • You Could Never

    I dont eem like you most times, but I DO agree with this.

  • Noirluv45

    Don't even reply. He's a troll.

  • Noirluv45

    Yep. Race is a social construct erected by the White man. He thinks he is the ruler of all and determines who is who. I'm willing to be most White folks don't consider Mexicans White even though they might.

  • Noirluv45

    Think about it, though. Mexicans, Chinese, Asian Indians (from India), Nigerians, Haitians, Puerto Ricans, etc. have country, customs, language, and culture. Many of these foreigners have groups in their country of origin or heritage that backs them up. They congregate in their communities, have restaurants, festivals, stores, and everything else that honors their culture. Many Black American's communities have been gentrified. Whenever we tried to build our empires, they were torn down (Oklahoma's Black Wall Street). Integration didn't help either because when we were segregated, we HAD to make our own way. Now many of us have to depend on the White man. Shoot, we don't even have any franchises.

  • SumthinSweeter

    You are right about the hair. They mark us up retail but discount their own especially when they buy bulk. Most if not all suppliers won't even sale the "bundles" wholesale unless you spend upwards of $5,000 +. The bundle hair game is like cocaine and heroin out here in these streets ??

  • SumthinSweeter

    Facts!

  • SDot

    Cop look dumb! He feel stupid!

  • kennedy220

    True they have been gentrified but when we are able to build I don't see the support from us. I seek out and if it's near me or I can order online I'll support ... I've speak with the black businesses owners that I've met through traveling and we tend to get on the subject of who our supporters are... my dads business is now in a minority neighborhood but his main customers are still the sprites

  • Harley

    Anyone stating this black man was hostile needs to shut up. He could have lost his life and been another hashtag while these cops covered it up. He has every right to be upset and this cop needs to be fired, not just reprimanded!

    Ok I'm glad he stood up for himself, but don't get killed!

    To answer your question, YES. BW too ? I believe she's an immigrant (a whole 'nother set of issues regarding how she views AFAMs) and is a lesbun. Some self-loathing and deprecating behavior is there!

    Sandra tryna get paid. If you can't tell by now she's really trying to stir up controversy to get clicks by now you need to find another blog. I don't think for one second she believes the stuff she writes. I can almost hear her laughing as she writes her blogs out lol.

    those reason that you named are the reason blacks made the perfect slaves..the indians would kill the whites when they went to sleep...the blacks tucked the white babies in and sung lullabies....like really the only reason blacks got transported all over the world as slaves is the simple fact we wanted life other races choose death....

  • shun king

    but you say i am extra stupid...learn about history

  • shun king

    the cop have the upper hand and all yall folks worried about these cops ya own kind kill each other 300x more than cops and bet you dont talk like that to another black thug with a gun but you do it to the police cause yall hope he will follow the law...but quiet when ya own people eating each other alive

  • Ryan

    Lot of jealousy of American Black women. Black women from other countries hate AA women but please believe they try like hell to get over here, even flirting with old white men (and women!!) trying to con them and get that green card. I used to work as one of the admins for a dating site and got some stories.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Where's the rest of the video? If the cop actually pointed his weapon at the motorist during a routine traffic stop over the failure to use a turn signal, that's outrageous. If the officer simply removed his weapon from his holster, that's another story. Traffic stops are extremely dangerous. One minute a cop is talking to a civilian about blowing a stop sign, and the next minute, they are looking down the barrel of a gun.

CUSTOMER SERVICE IS ABSENT. I WILL RIDE WITH U FOREVER IF THE CUSTOMER SERVICE IS GOOD B/C I HATE CHANGE. LOL!!!!..........JENNY JONES!!!!

    The cop looking all kinds of stupid. Someone that knows him will release his name.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    He wasn't representing me.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    It's a shame that black people allow them to get away with that. I would never buy anything in any of these Korean-run hair stores, not even a hairbrush. They won't get a penny from me.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    As a taxpayer, he is paying that man's salary. That's the big difference. He has a right to speak up when he's being disrespected.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    That just shows you the dangers of driving while black. I bet you if that was "Amy Goldstein" he wouldn't have pulled his gun out.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    I get both sides. I agree with RESPECTFULLY speaking out because I was always taught to especially respect the person carrying the gun so as to not pose a threat.

    I also get his outrage. He was fortunate though that this was not a trigger happy officer either way.

    It's sad, a few stupid cops can ruin it for everyone. They don't respect or remember the oath they took "to protect and serve". But on the other hand a few stupid people during traffic stops have them on edge too. The legit ones want to make it home that night...
    The whole situation is tough

  • Noirluv45

    I agree. I won't give them one cent of my money. I remember some Koreans opened up a store across the street from a Black-owned beauty supply that had been there for years. The Black-owned shop went out of business, so the only one left in the area was the Korean-owned shop. They treated Black people like we had tails; nevertheless, Black folks continued to patronize them. I'd sit there in disgust watching them walk in and out of that store as if they were on a conveyor belt. Pitiful!

  • Ryan

    There was one girl, can't remember which African country she was from, talked to this old white guy. He flew her out a couple of times and eventually proposed to her. She got over here, they married at the courthouse and she filed for divorce about a week later. He tried to sue us for fraud but WE didn't fraud him, lol!! Date at your own risk!

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    It's a double edge sword. Both parties should be able to peacefully walk away from a routine police encounter.

    There are people who join law enforcement for the sole purpose of abusing their authority, and there are civilians who won't think twice about taking someone's life... especially, if it's a cop.

    Hispanics are more prejudice against blacks than whites.

    Yes they are, and how dare them. You would think Hispanics would be a little more accepting. I'm not saying all of them. There are some really good and hard working people that gets a bad rep for the ones that do bad things
